New Tongan currency for king's coronation

The Tongan government has issued new currency notes and coins on June 29 at the Fa’onelua Convention Centre to mark His Majesty’s coronation.

The adoption of the six new Pa’anga notes and five new coins set the 5 seniti coin as the lowest denomination coin.

There will be no more 1 and 2 seniti coins.

The 5s, 10s, 20s, and 50s coins choose an image of Tupou VI while the $1 coin carries a portrait of George Tupou V.
